While our Pastor is on break, we thought it would be fun to look back at some of the most popular blogs he has written. Today’s blog originally appeared on September 30, 2016. It deals with the subject: I WASN’T BEING FED: … (and other lame excuses people give for why they drop out of church.)
Anyone who has ever worked in a church has heard the seemingly endless litany of excuses people give for why they drop out of church. One of the more infamous lines people use is, "I WASN’T BEING FED." Or the twin sister version, "I’m looking for something deeper." Usually uttered by someone with a shallow understanding of what it really means to be a fully devoted follower of Christ and/or someone who, at best, had a superficial involvement in the church.
In most cases, the person who says, “I wasn’t being fed,” is using that excuse to hide the real issue: They wanted cotton candy, instead of the meat of the Word.
Take a couple of minutes to read it and then, share it with your friends.
